The knife is made from steel that I got at Menards. I shaped and sharpened the steel using an angle grinder, bench grinder, and belt sander.
The handle is made of deer antler found in our woods and a walnut wood collar
The sheath is genuine leather. I cut and sewed the leather sheath myself.
The knife is meant for work outside or an all-around utility knife.
Hi my name is Layton. I am 12 and in the 6th grade. This is my first year of homeschooling, because of the pandemic.
I have recently made a backyard blacksmithing forge with a piece of old railroad track and a stump for my anvil. I am hoping to learn the ropes of medieval and modern blacksmithing during the pandemic.
I really like working with my hands. One of my favorite projects is a cabin I made with my cousins.
